 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After the Navy I was determined to get a Federal Job to allow me use my Navy Training and Time as part of my Retirement.

I succeeded! 1 year after I was out and I was hired to work for the National Weather Service as a Electronics Technician in Alaska. I have transfered since then, to become a instructor and IT for the NWS.

I am currently working as the IT Officer and an Instructor at the National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City MO.

I was able to use my skills as a electronics technician and instructor in the Navy in my current position.

 
 

AOC that I have as rememberance was my Step-Father, who died of Cancer in 1997

   
Other Comments:

"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this 20th and 21th century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy." ~JFK~


My youngest son is on active Duty the navy. Currently in Great Lakes, Going through FC"A" School
